Unformatted text preview: Microsoft Project 2007 Level 2: Working with Resources and Managing a Project By Robin Peers Robin Peers, 2008 Microsoft Project 2007Level 2 Working with Resources and Managing a Project Page 2 ABOUT THIS CLASS In Microsoft Project 2007 Level 1: Creating Project Tasks, the focus was on how to create a project plan with tasks and resources. In this class, the emphasis is on refining the project plan by adding resources to tasks, including assigning additional resources and exploring task type, and finalizing the project plan. Then once the plan is finalized, the focus shifts to managing your project using the tools provided by Microsoft Project to monitor project progress and also exchanging data with other applications. COURSE DESCRIPTION In this class, you will assign resources to tasks and view the effect of assigning more than one resource to a task. You will also learn how to view the critical path and set a baseline. Then you will manage your project by updating task progress, marking tasks as finishing on time or ahead or behind schedule. Finally, you will learn how to import or export Microsoft Project data with other programs such as Excel or Access and how to take a screen shot of your current view that can be used in Word, PowerPoint or in a web page. COURSE OBJECTIVES Assign resources to project tasks and explore the impact of adding additional resources Finalizing the project by saving a baseline, viewing critical path and looking for ways to shorten the duration of the project Update progress on tasks including learning ways to view tasks that behind schedule Work with data from other applications such as Excel or Access and export data out to other file formats including capturing a screen shot of the current view Microsoft Project 2007Level 2 Working with Resources and Managing a Project Page 3 ABOUT THIS CLASS....................................................................................................................................2 COURSE DESCRIPTION.................................................................................................................................2 COURSE OBJECTIVES ..................................................................................................................................2 LESSON 1 MANAGING RESOURCES IN A PROJECT PLAN....................................................................4 A.
